Houses

Most of the houses on Verdantium are located in a row at the docks at the south end of the island. The blue south-most house has a giant large Duracell AA battery, a reference to when Nahr added a Duracell battery where the souther cannon battery is now located, in a joking response to former Verdantine Sovereignty Governor Milbert23's call for a cannon battery to be constructed.

Trivia

  • Verdantium island once had a "salt mine", which was actually originally intended to be the entrance for a proposed hang-out area for community events. The hang-out area was never finished, and thus the entrance was non-functional, and finally removed. Behind the door at the location was an NPC vendor that was never accessible to players. This entrance was meant to be placed on Freeport, but instead was instead misplaced to Verdantium. The joke about the location being a salt-mine originated from the fact that after one winter, there was a small portion of terrain which didn't revert back to green; the white pile somewhat resembled salt.
